I loved this idea, as I am already working with FPGAS.[quote]

I always love the idea of using an accelerator card but never liked that Amiga didn't support multiple cpu. I hope and wo see opportunities and possibilities to use new accelerator cards in the new Amiga generation (ppc) or X64 it doesn't matter I always like the idea of expanding the hardware that you already have to a new level instead of trowing away good hardware Amiga is not a soul less pice of cheap hardware..

Well it's about number crunching, where FPGAs might have a benefit over GPUs using exotic data formats.

So nothing for Amiga, nothing for Amiga accelerators ...

@NutsAboutAmiga

AAA chipset was supposed to offer that as an option before it got cancelled... and would have come out with it before ATI/AMD too.
